Jim Prior, CEO of WPP brand consultancy and design agency The Partners, has also been appointed CEO of Lambie-Nairn, a fellow WPP agency, in a new combined role.

The current CEO of Lambie-Nairn, Christian Schroeder, is moving on after seven years in the role to become the WPP Client Leader for British American Tobacco.

Jim Prior commented: “It has been my great privilege to play a part in The Partners’ success of the last 13 years and I look forward to continuing that journey. The opportunity now to take a similar course with Lambie-Nairn is hugely exciting, and I very much look forward to building on the superb foundations that it has in place.”

In his new dual role, Prior will manage both agencies as distinct businesses and both will continue to serve their clients as separate brands.
